  • Always liked Trufant. I think he was undervalued by many of the fans the past season. I wish him nothing but the best in Jacksonville

  • Congrats to him. Hopefully he makes the final 53. He can get you to the ground, tackling was never a weak point for him. That back problem he has though is going to be the one thing that probably derails his attempt at extending his career. Gus should think about moving him to safety.

  • Trufant is really underappreciated on here, IMO. Great player, teammate, and part of the Seattle community. Hope he does well in Jacksonville. Would be nice to see him retire as a Seahawk on a 1-Day contract.

  • Trufant is not underappreciated on here - historically. Any decent Seahawks fan knows how good he has been for us, and how professional he has been. What people have noticed is how he has slowed down a bit the last few seasons, mostly just getting older.

    I love Tru...one of my all time favorite Hawks. But he's not the same player anymore, clearly. It happens to the best of em.

    A agree wholeheartedly. Great story, stayed in WA his whole career.

    On being not appreciated, not so much agreement. I have heard folks say stuff, but I bet even Russell made somebody mad at one time. Wait...

    I think the Harmon brothers (Ronnie, Kevin, Derrick) came close, but pretty sure Derrick was out of the league a year before Kevin came to the Hawks.

    Before the back injury, there was a good stretch of 3-4 years where you could make the case Trufant was the most dangerous guy on the whole team with the ball in his hands. Think he only wound up with 2-3 TD's in his career, but any INT he got where there was some space to work with, he always came within a few hairs of breaking it - very Golden Tate-ish. I've always thought that if Holmgren had taken some chances and used him on PR or some trick O plays, he could've really been electric.
    I'm sick of chasing after my dreams. I'm just going to find out where they're headed, and catch up with them later.

    I'll admit, I didn't like him ever really. Although he wasn't a Ruskell pick.......he reminds me of the Ruskell era. Just my opinion, please don't get your panties in a bunch. I want to forget that time.

    He was great in the community, but thought he never lived up to expectations on the field.

    Best of luck this season in Jacksonville and retirement. Hope ur younger brothers do well except against the Seahawks!

    Trufant was one one of my all-time favorites. Was hoping he'd retire a Hawk. Glad I got his autograph at VMAC last year.

    One of my favourite Seahawks, would have liked him to retire as a 'Hawk but hope he is a success at his new team - he has 2 TD's from interceptions and he is that brilliant one vs Washington

  • And then there were none.

    With Trufants signing and the earlier designation of Hills number to Avril the last of the 2005 XL Seahawks is gone. In fact at present there are only 4 players on the 91 man roster who were not picked by this regime.

    Thanks for you service Marcus you will always be a Seahawk to me.

    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

    Man, that's what having a bulldozer collapsing the pocket does for your secondary... what a play... it's what we were missing last year and hoping we have on a consistant basis this year.

    I never would have guessed.

    Good for him. His chances of making this roster were slim at best. There he has a chance to play and teach.

    Is Bradley going to run our system? People always say Bradleys system and the Leo but we know its Petes. Is he taking it or we don't know?

  • Fair winds and following seas, Tru! Hell of a player for us over the years. People say he's washed up, but I think a lot of that is caused by extra scrutiny on a very good defense. And I'd think he might just be an upgrade on a very bad Jacksonville team.

    Nothing but best wishes to him. Tru has been a rock on & off the field for this franchise, community & entire frickin' state for almost 2 decades.



    This still gives me goosebumps.

    unless he knows something fans don't...



    Could be he knows a Seattle weak link could be a Jacksonville strong suit. Comparatively, anyway.


    His value these days lies in his experience. He made a wonderful mentor for our young DB's, and I'm sure Bradley likely wants him to do the same for Jacksonville.

  • A good move for everyone. I hope Truf plays his best football in Jags. "I'm a Seahawk man". If, and when, we dont re-sign Leroy Hill, there will be no players left from the 2005 super bowl team?

    I'll admit, I didn't like him ever really. Although he wasn't a Ruskell pick.......he reminds me of the Ruskell era. Just my opinion, please don't get your panties in a bunch. I want to forget that time.

    He was great in the community, but thought he never lived up to expectations on the field.


    This post reaks of jumping to conclusions based upon a lack of Seahawk knowledge and an unwillingness to learn.

  • One very important job of a slot corner is stopping the run, and he's above average at that, so he should add to the competition at that spot in Jax. Heck, at that position, he might even be an upgrade for them.

    Please explain why you feel Im jumping to conclusions based on lack of knowledge. Im struggling to see how you would pull all that from an opinion but Im more than willing to dig a little deeper into reasoning behind my own opinions.

    I guess I expect more than you do out of the 11th overall pick in a draft. He had one good season (was selected as and All-Pro and made it to the Pro Bowl).... I expect more than one All-Pro selection and one Pro Bowl .... ya he was a long term Seahawk but he was never elite (some may argue his All-Pro season). Do I love what he did outside of football....hell ya, great guy.

    When someone disagrees with your opinion it doesn't mean they lack knowledge....just means they have a different perspective then you do. Maybe you are a Coug that lived in Tacoma and love the Trufants...that guy loves Trufant. Doesn't mean something reaks....bruh.

    Hell yea. I was in Shanghai, China wearing my Trufant jersey watching this game at a bar going nuts. I will always have a man crush on Tru.

    I am still going to yell TRUUUU as he comes out on the field even if he is in a Jags uniform. That said, I am bummed he is going to get shredded by our wideouts.
